The Effect of Sin

I heard that sinning causes one to lose his or her beuty, and it was quoted from the ( Zohar Vol. 3:83) can you clarify this for me please?

Answer:

From what I can tell, sinning does not cause a person to lose his/her beauty. I think this is fairly clear.

From a scan of the Zohar, the reference appears to be to Adam, the first of men, whose sin caused his body to become darkened, and required him to receive a new body.

In a spiritual sense, sinning certainly affects a person’s inner stature, but his superficial form is not directly affected.
